It was a "software failure", so it says on ABC news.  Some problem with the SCADA system.

Peer 1 has a generator on site, I think the lights would have to be out in NYC for several days before this site went down.

(I hope... in Norway now, so I don't know exactly what's going on)

Natural gas generators are available now; Peer 1 could get expensive power from the gas main indefinately with one of these. Of course, any data routed through NYC... ;)
